Hey RE--love that "hippie tree hugging shit" line above! What time period would typify that stuff?

Although a bit tongue in cheek in my post above, I really don't know his "rockin" material from post 75; would there be contributions that an era NY freak like me would find somehow similar to the EKTIN album style?

today is a happy neil day since I will finally be able to buy the 68 release...

WT: I think you want to stay with the in-the-ditch trilogy: on the beach, tonight's the night and time fades away...dilcurrie hits the nail on the head with time fades away...

slow on posting since I would rather see other's opinions and not just ramble my own, especially on a subject that is so close...funny, I asked a similiar question regarding neil on college arrival and was told just to buy decade and you will be set...well, I wore decade out within a month and went on to buy the complete collection up to that time and have continued to buy and listen...though for someone that loves neil I have only owned harvest twice...

though I do need to hear Words on occasion and for that I pull out journey through the past...since it contains a nice long rehearsal take of Words...(journey is great if you can find a copy...)

Here is an amazing boot if you can find it:

(simply put some of the best neil I have heard!!!---during one of the breaks he gives the recipe for his favorite pot treats...)

Citizen Kane Junior Blues 1974 (Soundboard)

Live at the Bottom Line, New York, May 16 1974

The word is that neil went to see Ry Cooder, and was so inspired that he did a special one-hour acoustic guest set after Cooder.

Track 01 Pushed It Over The Edge (Neil calls it "Citizen Kane Junior Blues") (9.6MB)
Track 02 Long May You Run (6.9MB)
Track 03 Greensleeves (4.0MB)
Track 04 Ambulance Blues (14.1MB)
Track 05 Helpless (7.6MB)
Track 06 Revolution Blues (5.1MB)
Track 07 On The Beach (9.4MB)
Track 08 Roll Another Number For The Road (4.0MB)
Track 09 Motion Pictures (14.0MB)
Track 10 Pardon My Heart (6.4MB)
Track 11 Dance, Dance, Dance (3.7MB)
Bonus
Track 12 For The Turnstiles (location unknown, 1973) (5.2MB)
Track 13 Flying On The Ground Is Wrong (Carnegie Hall, 1974-12-05) (6.3MB)

Also there was a chrome dreams album that was never released which has a mixture of tunes that eventually made it onto american stars and bars, zuma and rust...pressed but never released...some of the tunes are the versions later released but others are very different...sedan delivery, hold back the tears and powderfinger (the last two acoustic) are all better than the versions released...if this had been released it might have been the best for that period...

this is sweet:

01. Pocahontas
02. Will To Love
03. Star Of Bethlehem
04. Like A Hurricane
05. Too Far Gone
06. Hold Back The Tears
07. Homegrown
08. Captain Kennedy
09. Stringman
10. Sedan Delivery
11. Powderfinger (acoustic)
12. Look Out For My Love
in other neil news, it

---

it looks like the big archieve release is scheduled for early 2009:
New details on Neil Young's expansive The Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972 box set, due for release early in 2009, have been revealed.

According to a newly-released trailer, the box set, on 10-disc DVD or Blu-Ray, will contain 128 audio tracks, including 43 unreleased and 13 of these never heard before.

The set, which comes with a 236-page hardback book, will also feature access to thousands of images and hours of video.

One of the videos included is Journey Through The Past, Young's 1974 film never before released on DVD, which includes footage of Buffalo Springfield and Crosby Stills Nash And Young.

An audio track of 'Aurora' by Young's high school band The Squires is also included.

The previously-released Archives albums, Live At The Fillmore East and Live At Massey Hall 1971, will also be included in the box set, although it is currently believed that the newly-released Sugar Mountain - Live At Canterbury House 1968 will not.

Hey V, I have told this a few times, so sorry if you already heard it, but since you clearly like NY, thought I would repeat it for your sake in case it's new:

An old friend was bird watching one very early morning in rural Marin County (no. SF) in the early 70s when he spied a very special bird go into the woods on a clearly very private residence. He sheepishly knocked on the door at this very early hour and noneother than Neil answered...he acted nonchalant and explained that he just hoped it would be okay with him, the land owner, for he and his friend to pursue the bird, and Neil said "sure...and hold on, let me come with you".

It was really cool I always thought...

actually I have told the story a few times...

and I still haven't got my binoculars out and purchased a bird guide...

I only once very highly shook his hand and said "great show, neil" as he was walking towards his bus. Just kind of stumbled into him as I was trying to get out of the place myself. I could tell that he appreciated the comment. Though someday it would be nice to get a few minutes with him at this local restaurant that we both frequent. I guess, just to thank him more than anything else.

anyway, with all the talk of 9-20 (my b-date, so always a special day) I thought I would listen to 70 and then 90...
enjoying 70 at the moment...I always have to listen to the cumberland blues twice since it is so nice...

so was pigpen basically relegated tambourine duty or something like that during the acoustic set or is he just very low in the mix? you would think they could have thrown him a bone in the set someplace...looking forward to the easy wind and attics...

tambourine duty reminds me of a letterman top ten:

top ten tambourine performances of all time, here is the top five or close:

5. davie jones...monkees reunion tour 94
4. stivie nicks...f. mac rumours tour
3. davie jones...monkees reunion tour 98
2. davie jones...monkees first tour
2. josie from josie and the pussycats...any performance
1. davie jones...last train to clarksville studio

some things you can't purge from your mind no matter how hard you try...

Damn--I read the first few words and recalled the comment about buying a guide! Sorry! Getting old...

Yeah, tambourine is just not my typical interest, but I guess I recall Mick Jagger once in a great while, or Linda Ronstadt (when thin and young, hmmmm...I might take her for best looking shaker...).

Funny, but Jones is playing TONIGHT out here at one of the PHX area casinos! Not sure if that is sad or reason to rejoice...Monkees are one of my quilty pleasures these days after hating them with such a passion so long ago...

I have often thought the same about Pig. I have not researched it enough, or heard enough incidently to know what he did, but many times appears to have been more or less "left out" though again, not really sure. He did use some various tinkering sorts of instruments along with Mickey, I guess, but would love to hear from someone that saw him live in those few transitional years to get a better feel for it...

I overheard friends talking once at a bar: "you got to give him credit since the details are always the same so the stories must be true..."

brain jonestown massacre: I always loved the name and always heard positives, but for some reason never went to see them. But after doing some surfing I shall listen to them soon. It looks like the band goes through some line-up changes. Any favorite periods or line-ups?

so I gave up laughing at tambourines after seeing lowell george play one during a seemingly never ending guitar solo...it just made me shake my head...one of those: "how did he do that..." (that guy, had some talent to say the very least)...plus, the names currently escape me but I ended up tracking down some pretty good performers...

Like my sweetie divine, I am shocked and amazed that EKTIN didn't come out front and center for most contributions to any best of NY compilation.

What's with all the recent stuff? Oh, I know you're thinking "what is with Tell and this 'early is always better no matter who we're talking about'" but really, how can those albums in the late 70s/80s (?) even compare?

The first four albums are about all you need. A few live perf's of SugarMtn and N&DD and you are set.

If you don't think Ragged Glory stands up with his best Crazy Horse material, then stay stuck in your era. I love the fact he took Sonic Youth on tour with him - fun seeing the old fuckin' hippies complain about the distortion and noise and then groove to Neil doing the same shit.

Also, the Mirror Ball tour with Pearl Jam was great. They crushed songs like Powderfinger and Down by the River.

The thing I love about Neil is that he stays true to his own muse and is always trying different stuff, be it Shocking Pinks, Bluenotes, stripped down acoustic stuff (which must have Molina and Ben Keith), full on rockin' turn it up to 11 feedback with Crazy Horse, getting sued for Trans by David Geffen (which was an attempt for him to communicate with his son), etc.... BTW, Booker T is recording a new album that will feature Neil and the Drive By Truckers.

Some of my very favorite live moments have been courtesy of Mr. Young.

Well, I have probably 70 of neil's albums, and have definite favorites. ARC is an awesome live release, and the Like a Hurricane on that release is unbelievable. I love the Harvest Moon release from '92. And I think that through the career, with notables like After the Gold Rush, Everybody Knows, Harvest, Long May You Run... etc. I have to say that my favorite Neil release is Prarie Wind. This was released in 2005. The music was written and recorded just after he was diagnosed with a brain aneurism, and just before he went in for reparation surgery. So personal, and amazing.

Hey Stagger. I have to agree with you on Prairie Wind. I love most of his older stuff, but Prairie Wind just strikes a really nice chord with me. Good call. Surprised it didn't get much (if any) mention above. It may not be a raging rocker but it's from the heart and awesomely performed.

Hey you two--don't hold it against me, but just curious: do you both like all of his stuff, or more toward non rockin material? The reason I ask is that I was really disappointed in the DVD/song writing with the Prairie thing of late. Don't get me wrong, I love interviews, just hearing him talk, etc., etc., but somehow the songs seemed formulaic, forced...I dunno...not the angst I was used to from the early days.

I am such an ass, I know, but I really feel guilty about not having appreciated it more and just wonder what got you guys to feel differently...

I don't think that you're an ass (at least not because of this). I just think that there are so many tastes in the world, that there's no point in judging because of it.

But there is a big Hippie Tree Hugger inside of me, as well as someone who loves Lou Reed, and Nick Cave, and The Clash and The Who, and Marillion, and The Pursuit of Happiness... There is so much great out there. I don't usually put myself into any particular category...

In Neil's case, he writes what he writes from the heart. He doesn't seem to craft so much as stream of consciousness. The guy wrote Living with War in 5 days.

Anyway...
